Microgaming Donates to Local Manx Charity

Part of Microgaming's Play it Forward project is its very active Health and Care Trust, which regularly donates to important charities on the Isle of Man and beyond.

This time around, it was the Manx Carriage Driving for Disabled (MCD4D) group that benefited from a substantial donation made by the online casino software group's Health and Care Trust.

The money went towards buying a mobile trailer to help the charity expand its services right across the Isle of Man.

This charity provides disabled people on the island with the opportunity to experience the fun and enjoyment of equestrian activities in a safe environment. The driving sessions are conducted under the supervision of an experienced RDA Carriage Driving Coach.

Importance of Mobile Trailer

Thanks to the new mobile trailer, MCD4D will be able to brings its services to the disabled island-wide. It will be able to contribute to projects such a the Flexible Learning Academies, where secondary students on the island get to help support other students with learning disabilities.

Speaking for Manx Carriage Driving 4 Disabled, Martin Sewell said that the group is growing, however there are occasions where people are missing out on the service as they cannot get to the MCD4D headquarters, the Ballavartyn Equestrian Center.

"By purchasing a mobile trailer we can widen our reach and ensure many more people can benefit from carriage driving," he said. "A big thank you to the Microgaming Health & Care Trust for contributing to the unit, it’s very much appreciated.”

Also commenting was the chairman of the Microgaming Health and Care Trust, Dr Roy Clague who noted: "We have seen first-hand the amazing service that Manx Carriage Driving 4 Disabled offers on the island. To be able to grow this service island-wide is a no-brainer, so we were more than happy to subsidize the mobile unit."

Microgaming's Play it Forward venture was established in 2014 and serves as an outlet for social good on the Isle of Man, especially in the areas of health, charity, education and sport.
